A SMALL HYPERSONIC AIRPLANE FOR POINT-POINT TRANSPORTATION, SUBORBITAL MISSIONS AND SPACE TOURISM.
Today's business is getting faster and has long been spoken by various parts of supersonic business jet development programs for commercial aviation.
In order to meet the needs of the next decades, Trans-Tech offers a hypersonic aircraft capable of covering trans-oceanic and intercontinental routes in a fraction of the time it needs today.
Primary innovation is that the same aircraft can also realize suborbital flights, in the direction of space tourism development, microgravity testing, and small-payload launch to low Earth orbit, at relatively low cost
In summary HyPlane is:
• An executive hypersonic jet for fast trips
• A space tourism aircraft
• A scientific-technological platform for microgravity experiments
• A training facility for pilots and astronauts
• A system for small payload launch to orbit
The project comes from a concept developed by Trans-Tech in collaboration with University Federico II of Naples.
